Good day, all! As you know, Thursday is blog day. Last week Rose left her hometown and dental practice in Philadelphia to spend a few days in the Windy City, Chicago. While the purpose of her trip was to do a presentation on oral-care in children, she extended her stay there for a day or two to view some of the amazing sites… and climb herself to unfathomable heights!
It seems that no one is really 100% sure why Chicago got the name ‘The Windy City’. Some say it’s because of the off-shore breeze that flows from Lake Michigan, while others say it’s because everyone there has something to say; the breath from everyone speaking is like ‘hot wind’! Hah!
Well, Rose was astounded by the architecture in Chicago. She sent me some pictures to share with you.
Take a look!
What an amazing city! When we see things like this, what’s even more amazing is that structures as defined and well-constructed exist in nature as well. Take a look at this article from BBC Earth that shows how the building industry “is moving towards a more environmentally nature inspired understanding of how nature responds to its environment and how humans can do the same.”
Of course, everything in life is shapes and numbers, and nature started it first! This reminds me of Rose’s book ‘The Simple Things Around Me’, a story told by Imani about the magnificent things that surround her each day, in nature in Kenya. As a tooth-fairy, I can honestly say humans are pretty close to matching nature, although nature will always be the winner – don’t you think?
Have you ever been to Chicago, or perhaps you live there? Feel free to tell us more about this amazing city in the comments on Rose’s Facebook page.
Until next time, keep shining,
reach for new heights,
and stay magical!
